Storage of low-level radioactive waste. View of part of a ramp (or pad) storage site for low-level radioactive wastes. In the foreground a site worker is seen. The round object on his belt is a dosimeter badge which measures the amount of radioactivity to which he has been exposed. Open- air ramp stores are only used for low-level waste. This may include radioisotopes from medical and chemistry research and other items such as discarded protective clothing. As well as a low general level of radioactivity, such waste contains isotopes with short half-lives.
